Royal Wedding Sucker

April 29, 2011

I tried to be one of those people who didn’t really give a thought to the Royal Wedding. But who am I kidding? I’m a sucker for all things “girly”. (please refer to title of blog) 

Turns out it took over me and the first thing I did this morning was turn the TV on to see the coverage. Travis told me that Sports Center would cover it because David Beckham was there, LIES! Clearly that wasn’t the case, so I put my laptop in the bathroom while I got ready to stream coverage and it was perfect. I watched the 8 minute ceremony video and was hooked! I was SUPER excited when they hadn’t had their “first kiss” and I could catch that. I would be late to work, but this is history, DUH!


Almost resembles this Royal couple.

We’re rocking TOMS

 Yesterday I sold my dress and I wonder if she will do the same? Will she asked for a certified check? Sure hers will go up for auction, but who needs all that fuss, she should use Recycled Bride like I did or maybe Craigslist is more her style. You think? Hers will go for hundreds of thousands or more mine went for 10’s of hundreds. Same difference no biggie.

Anyways, let move on shall we. Last night, after passing my dress on to another, we went to watch the Hawks dominate the Magic! I’m not an NBA person, but it was pretty fun. Last weeks game was fun too, but this time we got to watch in a box! It was with Travis’ company so it was more of a work thing for him, but I had a blast!

we get laser eyes on weeknights after 9

I usually try to shy away from anything that will keep me out past 9 on weeknights but the energy was amazing. Surprisingly I feel good and rested today, which is good because it’s going to be another night out for the Hudgens clan.

Every month a group of 8 of us try a different restaurant. Tonight it’s Miller Union. I’m not lying when I tell you we’ve been trying for reservations for 3 months. It was mentioned in Food and Wine magazine so everyone rushed to eat there. I hope it’s as good as everyone says, but if not at least we tried it!

I love the idea of trying a new place each month. There are so many different places and having a group of friends involved makes it that much better.

Do you have any monthly group dates you look forward to?

I love the matter-of-factness of your “laser eyes” comment. Live sporting events are always fun!

Haha thanks. To be honest I wrote the post at work and don’t have a red eye remover in the edit. Haha

What a beautiful couple! (You guys, not the royals!) Your dress is so gorgeous, the next bride is so lucky to have it :)

That’s a fabulous idea to have someone pick a new place every month. To be honest we’ve laid low since we moved to a new part of town and are moving soon so we’re still laying low. I do look forward to skyping with my family every month. :)

Hope you have a lovely dinner and a great weekend! :)

That is so nice, thank you. I just stared Face Time with my parents and it’s awesome, I’ve thought about skype too.

I have the same type of dinner club with my friends! It’s also once a month and 8 of us. We just went to Terra Terroir in Brookhaven.

I’m going to have to look at Recycled Bride. Right now my dress is in a box in the basement.

OHH I’ll have to try that out. Recycled bride is great because you don’t get any creepy scammers like craigslist.

I don’t have any monthly group dates but I should really start something up! I would love to try a new place every month. So often we just go to places we’ve already been before just because we’re guaranteed to like it. I could be missing out!!!

Have fun tonight!!

p.s. I didn’t think I would watch the royal wedding but I too got hooked!!!
